It was in 2010 Free replaced Flozell Adams for the season and may have been the team’s best offensive lineman. Free was developing nicely. Then the Cowboys drafted Tyron Smith in ’11, and Free stayed on the left side until this offseason when he was moved back to his original right side.
On paper, Free should have an easier time on the right. But he looks lost, and over matched. He looks like a guy drafted in the fourth round from Northern Illinois.
Watching Martellus Bennett's brother pick up Free and drive him into the quarterback was very Reggie White-ish. And I'm fairly certain NO ONE is going to confuse Michael Bennett for Reggie White.
This is a major problem for an offensive line that already has serious issues in the middle, and if it continues this way for a few more weeks is going to get Tony Romo killed. This is not a team that can afford to keep Jason Witten and John Phillips into block every play to bail out the edge of their line.
ALTERNATIVE: Zero. Get better. The Cowboys are not going to move Smith back to the right and Free back to the left. And they are not going to promote reserve Jermey Pernell.
